Important Information About Your Medi-Cal Coverage
If you currently receive health insurance through Medi-Cal or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), you must provide the county with your updated information so you can continue receiving important information about your Medi-Cal coverage.
Why is this happening?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, all Medi-Cal or CHIP recipients were continuously enrolled in health insurance coverage without needing to reapply for benefits. Due to a recent federal law, continuous Medi-Cal enrollment ended on March 31, 2023, so you need to take steps to ensure your health insurance coverage will continue if you are eligible.
What can you do to maintain your coverage?
- Make sure to update your contact information with Medi-Cal. The first step is to make sure that your county has your current contact information, name, address, phone number, or e-mail address. To find a listing of county offices, visit dhcs.ca.gov/COL.
- Be on the lookout for renewal materials from your local county office and complete and submit the required information.
- If you no longer qualify for Medi-Cal you can visit coveredca.com for information on additional coverage options.
